I wore a very neutral eye… white on the whole eye, and a light brown in the crease, black eyeliner, a lot of mascara, white on lower waterline. Then on the cheeks I wore Style blush, and on the lips Crosswires l/s with Fulfilled plushglass on top. It’s such a pretty combination that flatters me well I think!

Smokey eyes in traditional Black/Grey or Purple or Green. Rally play up my eyes and turn them into centre of attention =)

I used a tip from a magazine and put a soft greige/taupe (I used the dark part in Clinique’s Maple Blossom) from lash line to above crease, then a golden color on the movable lid (i used a coppery gold from the Body Shop). I also lined with a golden color. Light part of Maple Blossom for highlight.

i love the sound of this. I am lemming the Maple Blossom shadow, but it seems to be sold out all around me. I know I could get it online, but I don’t wanna pay for shipping πŸ˜›

Blue/grey smokey look! My favorite (MAC should re-release this) Softwash Grey pigment, Knight e/s, Top Knot e/s and Vellum e/s for highlighting.. For cheeks I wore Nars Orgasm and Redhead MSF and finish the look with Shy Girl Cremesheen lipstick and Pastel Emotion lipglass.

a simple natural look : naked lunch e/s, patina e/s, Satin Taupe e/s and Shroom e/s as a highlighter
For cheeks Redhead msf (I used the two middle stripes) and my new Clutch pink Dior gloss

Ooh, there are a few looks that I’ve done recently that I’ve really loved. I bought Chrome Yellow recently, so I’ve been enjoying experimenting with it.

I’ve worn Painterley paint pot as base, Chrome Yellow on the lid, Coppering in crease, Expensive Pink mid-lid-crease overlaying Coppering, then some more Chrome Yellow going a little over the Expensive Pink to blend, with Shroom to highlight.

I also did a similar look but with aqua and turquoise – Painterly paint pot as base, Chrome Yellow on lid, bright turquoise (Urban Decay deluxe eyeshadow in Peace) on crease, Aquadisiac mid-lid to crease overlaying UD Peace, then a little Chrome Yellow over the Aquadisiac to blend and Shroom to highlight.

Smokey warm chocolate eyes: shroom allover eye, sable all over lid and blended upwards, the body shop eye colour in chocolate patted on the outer lid and dusted on the rest of the lid to darken sable, and the dark brown side of the MAC suite array duo in Sweet Liason. Black liner smoked out with sable and the dark brown from Sweet Liason, black MAC mascara x, fill, color, and shape brows with a dark brown brow pencil. A little pit of matte peachy blush (try Peachykeen) on the apples of the cheeks blended to the temples, and to complement my dark eyes, a glossy lip balm that leaves a light pink tint on my lips. THIS is my fave look to do!!

I haven’t worn eyeshadow recently so my go-to look would be:

Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner in Zero on upper and lower lashline.
Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner in Yeyo on inner corner of eyes.
Black mascara on my curled eyelashes.
NARS Deep Throat blush on the apples of my cheeks.
Light Flush MSF for highlight around my face.
Strayin’ Lipstick lightly dabbed on lips, topped off with BeneFit Silky-Finish lipstick in Jing-A-Ling, and Sweet Strawberry lipglass on top.

With eyeshadow, the last complete look would be using shades from Diro’s quint palettes in both Incognito and Iridescent Leather for a slightly matte and shimmery neutral look that is not over the top. I used Sunbasque blush on my cheeks, and for my lips I applied Shy Girl lipstick topped off with Sweet Strawberry lipglass.

i went out on friday night with a bunch of friends after a stressful week at school. so i decided to go with something light coloured.

– MAC Bare Study p/p: over lid
– MAC Fairylite pigment: inner half of lid (blend with…)
– MAC Bell Bottom Blue pigment: lightly on outer half of lid + crease
– L’Oreal liquid eyeliner in black: upper lid only
– Majolica Majorca pencil liner in black: waterline
– White eyeliner: inner tear duct (blend up into fairylite)
– Maybelline Define-A-Lash mascara
– The Body Shop Shimmer Lip Balm in Rich Plum

It would have to be something I wore today and it’s a nice cranberry warm eyeshadow with browns and some pinks. And also a nice light flush on the cheek (Redhead MSF) and just a nice nude lip.

WOOPS, I should mention that the dark brown from Sweet Liason goes in the crease, and the black liner is on the top and bottom lash lines getting thicker and thicker more towards the outer eyes. πŸ˜‰

Can anyone recommend a good white eyeliner? I’ve been let down in the past! I’d appreciate it! Thanks!

I’m really liking today’s look – smokey brown on the lids, with Star Violet (my new favourite) in the crease, and a white-gold highlighter. Thin line of liquid liner on the top lid, and pink-y lip gloss.
Nice and subtle, and lends itself well to contouring and such, since it looks nice and simple.

I was convinced for the longest time that I could not wear neutrals because they washed me out [NW45], but through MACs lovely variety of colors, I’ve found the joy in neutrality πŸ˜€

Most recently my favorite looks has been:

Too Faced Shadow Insurance
MAC Fawntastic CCB for a pearly beige base
MAC Patina all over the eye
MAC Folie blended into the crease
MAC Rice Paper for hi lite
HiP Cream liner in black
ULTA Lash Primer
DiorShow Mascara Black Out

MAC Brunette MSF
MAC Raizin Blush

MAC Cream Sheen Gloss in Looks Like Sin

Oh! I loved yesterday’s eyeshadow. I took Bloody Mary hot pink shadow and put it all over my lid. Then I took the sparkly blue color from the Kat Von D Metal Orchestra palette and put it in the crease. Then I took the sparkly white from the same palette and put on my browbone, then blended everything. I wore black eyeliner, Urban Decay 24/7 Zero, on the top lashline, then I took blue eyeliner, Urban Decay 24/7 Electric, and put it on my waterline.

It looked so gorgeous! I’ll definitely do that again.

Yesterday I wore a Hello Kitty look that I loved!!
I used the Too Dolly quad- Yogurt all over the lid up to the brow and in the inner corners, then Romping on the outer 3/4th of the lid. The I put Stately black in the crease and outer V, and Too Dolly on my lower lashline. I wore it with Fun and Games blush and Sweet Strawberry l/g! It looked really cute!
